16 field hours. A practicum where each student is placed at a community agency. Students are expected to spend a minimum of 240 hours during the semester (16 hours per week) in the agency. Direct interaction with individuals and groups from diverse backgrounds, reflective supervision, and process recordings will aid the student in developing greater cultural awareness and sensitivity. Students will gain skills while working under the instruction of professional social work practitioners who are "teachers" in the field, in conjunction with the guidance of the Social Work faculty at CSI.
